"U-Vox" released in 1986, is the eighth full album and the fifth of the band's most-recognisable incarnation, fronted by Midge Ure. It was also the last Ultravox album to reach the top 10 in the UK album chart.
Despite achieving a respectable placing in the UK album charts, the album was heavily criticised both by the media and by fans, especially after drummer Warren Cann was unceremoniously dumped by the band before recording the album, being replaced by Mark Brzezicki from Big Country. The sound developed the movement away from electric rock started by Lament further and some unusual instrumentation was used, such as Celtic sound of "All Fall Down" with instrumentation by The Chieftains. The album's final track, "All in One Day" was arranged and conducted by George Martin.
"U-Vox" was the last Ultravox album with Midge Ure before the band split in 1988. Future incarnations of the band after "U-Vox" would feature keyboardist Billy Currie as the lone original member of the band.
